The FIA unveiled this Thursday the calendar for the 2023 season of the World Endurance Championship (WEC), which will see the presence of more and more of the major manufacturers (Toyota, Peugeot, Ferrari, etc.) thanks to the new regulations for “hypercars”. An additional sign of this positive momentum, an event has been added to the 2022 program since the 6 Hours of Portimao will have its first edition in mid-April after an identical start to the season in the United States on the difficult Sebring track which will host a prologue then the first race of the Championship.
The rest of the season will also be similar to 2022 with Spa-Francorchamps as the final rehearsal before the 24 hours of Le Mans which, unlike this year, will be held during a weekend where Formula 1 but also other Championships supply drivers (Indycar and Formula E) will all take a break. Monza, Fuji and Bahrain will always finish the season in this order.
